OSU football: Stillwater junior LB Gabe Brown receives offer from Cowboys

STILLWATER  – Oklahoma State's football team didn't have to go far to make its latest offer.

In fact, the Cowboys didn't have to leave Stillwater.

Gabe Brown, a junior linebacker at Stillwater, announced Thursday night on Twitter he had received an offer from OSU. 

Brown, at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, is a powerful linebacker who is strong at stuffing run gaps while having the speed and awareness to clog passing lanes. 

OSU was the first Division-I program to offer him a scholarship. Yet that soon won't be the case.

In the Class 6A-II second-ranked Pioneers' season-opening 45-32 win against Class 6A-I No. 6 Edmond Santa Fe in Week 1, Brown recorded 16 tackles and had an early interception. 

Brown is someone who is going to get plenty more Power-5 attention as his season goes on, but his first offer came from his hometown college.
